Engstligenalp Fondue Igloo

An Adelboden cheese fondue in a unique atmosphere

In a unique setting of snow, light and ice, you can enjoy a wonderful cheese fondue made using a secret Adelboden recipe. The Fondue Igloo has space for around 200 guests, making it the largest snow-igloo restaurant in Europe.

Since 1995, the igloo adventure has been lived on Engstligenalp. Large balloons are filled with air and covered with snow for the construction. The balloon is removed and the igloo envelope of snow is left behind. During the interior work, around 200 cubic metres of snow are first removed by hand and the igloos are decorated with artistic elements of snow and ice.
